June Birthday Gift Ideas
With the flowering season just over, this plant is now in full leaf and small berries are developing on the branches. Delivered in a gift wrapped 3L pot, ideal for a small garden and easy to look after.
Our June Tree of the Month is the Blueberry Plant Gift. Again, this one is more of a plant but it stands the test of time when it comes to a birthday gift in June. Blueberry plants are extremely popular to send throughout June. Whether it’s for a birthday or anniversary but it’s especially loved for a Fathers Day Gift. Father’s day falls on the 16th June 2019 so make sure you grab one before then!
The blueberry is a superfruit that can be munched straight from the branches or used in whipping up delicious sweet treats. Homemade blueberry muffins are on the cards with this heavy cropping blueberry bush. Perfect for an aspiring baker or someone who’s a bit of a health nut, especially if they love munching berries!
Delivery Tip: Small green berries will be forming on the branches. Get this delivered straight to the recipient all gift wrapped as a fruity June gift.
The perfect compact Acer tree for a small to medium garden. Lovely orange foliage, currently in full leaf and looking glorious. Delivered in a gift wrapped 5L pot and very low maintenance.
The colours held within the leaves of the Orange Dream Japanese Maple will brighten up a garden in the best way possible for a June birthday. The delicate foliage starts vibrant green in the centre encased in an orange outer edge.
All throughout the month of June, the tree will shine with its own personality. Always finding a way to draw the eye right back to it. The compact growing habit makes this tree an ideal addition to a garden that is on the smaller side. It can be grown in a container and be used to add a bright dash of colour to a patio.
Gooseberry Bush Gift
A small bushy plant delivered in a 3L pot, currently in full leaf with ripening berries forming. Compact and perfect for UK gardens, arrives gift wrapped in a natural hessian bag.
We would definitely recommend sending a Gooseberry Bush Gift for an occasion in June. They make for unique birthday gifts and we find that they are always very well received. June shows the gooseberry bush in all its glory full of leaves and ripening berries.
Gooseberry plants aren’t just popular for birthdays either, they prove time and time again to be amazing for Christening and new baby gifts. Don’t they say that babies are found under the gooseberry bush anyway?
The Invicta Gooseberry bush is perfect for garden growing, this variety is hardy and tolerant of the harsh UK weather and is so easy to look after. It’s a self-fertile plant meaning it isn’t necessary to have another plant in the garden to pollinate and as it’s a heavy cropper you’ll get more berries off this one than any other variety. The berries will ripen over a few weeks starting from mid-June to mid-July.
Delivery Tip: Once delivered the plant can be placed outside immediately, we recommend repotting to a larger pot (6L) to accommodate for the summer growth.
A perfect low maintenance, garden cherry tree. Full of leaves and ripening fruits are to be expected from June onwards. Delivered in a 10L pot gift wrapped in a hessian bag.
Sunny by name and sunny by nature! The Sunburst is a delight to have in the garden year round, but especially throughout the summer. The flowering season may be over but from June onwards this has so much more to give. The cherries produced by this tree are large, sweet and deep red in colour. They will currently be ripening on the tree and will be ready for the picking next month.
If you’ve got friends and family that love both eating fresh cherries or transforming them into an array of delicious treats this is the tree you need to send to them on their birthday this month.
Delivery Tip: A larger tree that can be delivered straight to the recipient and placed out in the garden straight away. We recommend planting the tree into the ground as soon as possible where it can grow happily throughout the summer and for many more years to come.
The Oak sapling is looking lovely and leafy. A sapling around 40-60cm tall, easy to look after but can grow very large. Best for early pot growing and planting out into a large garden or landscape in around 10 years.
According to the Celtic Tree Calendar, those born between the dates of 10th June - 7th July are ruled by the sign of the oak. The oak is known as the Father of the Woods, it stands strong with it’s imposing stature and root system. The sapling may be small now but it will grow into a mighty tree.
The oak is known as the Father of the Woods, another great gift to send this month for Fathers Day too. Our Father’s Day Oak Gift Set comes complete with an oak tree sapling and Love in a Bag wildflower seeds.
In June, the sapling is in full leaf and looking unquestionably delightful. Many people don’t know that they have their very own tree star sign so it makes for an interesting and unique birthday gift to receive.
For peoples whose birthdays that fall before the 10th June, their sign is the Hawthorn Tree Gift.

Delivery Tip: Once the oak sapling is delivered, remove from the packaging and place outside. This is ready to be planted straight away and can be planted in a 10L pot.
